- Q & A
Estate is a subsidiary of Federal, the company that was founded in 1922 by Charles Horn. Horn founded Federal after coming upon what was then a failing six-year-old factory; Horn believed he could turn the company into a success, and set about making it happen. When Horn started Federal he began selling their products in gas stations, barber shops, and grocery stores, something that isn’t possible today but would certainly be convenient. His methods worked and before long Federal was being approached by the government with a contract to build and operate the Twin City Ordnance Plant. Today Federal is a respected company known for producing reliable ammunition.
These particular Federal rounds are made for your 38 Special. At 130 grain they’re on the lighter end of the spectrum for the cartridge size, moving down-range at higher speeds and keeping felt recoil manageable. Each round has a muzzle velocity of 790 feet per second and a muzzle energy of 173 foot-pounds. These are Full Metal Jacket, FMJ, rounds, and don’t expand on impact but simply strike the target, penetrate, and keep on going. Always make sure you have a reliable backstop in place during target practice. This ammunition is specifically made for target practice, self-defense training, and plinking.
When you order this case of ammunition you get 1000 target rounds. With that much ammunition you can get some serious trigger time in with your favorite pistol. There are countless ways to improve your marksmanship from practicing firing from a variety of positions, including standing, kneeling, and prone, to shooting your gun supported and unsupported, to numerous drills. One drill made popular by the late Col. Jeff Cooper is the Mozambique, which involves placing two rounds to center mass and one to the head. Whatever you want to do, you can get it done with this big box of ammo from Federal. Ammunition is manufactured at their longtime factory in Anoka, Minnesota. Order now and hit the range with your favorite pistol.
